A fresh study by professional social networking site LinkedIn has confirmed what many have been suspecting for a while — that blockchain skills are one of the most important skills employers in the Asia Pacific are looking for.
The Asia Pacific (APAC) localized version of “The Future of Skills” 2019 report is a regular business feature from the social network and it has identified a trend for blockchain skills demand for the next few years. The specific skill set is in fact the ability of “setting up and managing a distributed and decentralised public ledger” — which is one of the capabilities blockchain is known for. This is closely followed by artificial intelligence (AI) and compliance, two buzzwords that commonly follow any white paper in a blockchain project or startup.
Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea lead the countries seeking out these new skill sets. The disruptive nature of all these technologies, it seems, also comes with a close need for compliance with the eyes of legislators and market regulators now trained on emerging tech sectors.
LinkedIn commented in the report:
“Rising skills can be used to forecast where industries are going… Examining what rising skills certain industries are hiring for shows what changes they are anticipating.”
And if that is true, then the jobs industry is expecting blockchain in commerce and enterprise to be around for many more years to come.
